Painted my hood Lambo Orange Pearl

Yep. Since I manage a body shop and I have unlimited acces to a professional painter, a booth and paint and I had dr.dirty's old hood I thought I'd consider a new paint scheme on my Jk. I've done the hood first to see if I like the color. I'll most likely run it with just the hood for a while and see if it's something I want to do.

Ok, I can see how the Lambo color would go with Silver, but those the PS pics don't do it for me.

Maybe the Orange with the silver as an accent color to set it off.... but those pics are to much silver.

Any suggestions? I don't want to do it all orange. It's just too much for me. My original intent was just to do something on the hood since it's an extra. I sprayed the whole hood just to see if I like the color. I'm still deciding what I like. I like flames but all of the flames my painter laid out looked like seaweed or kelp!

I think you should do the whole thing and put some black fenders on it. And leave off that fugly decal.

Personally, I wouldn't have painted the hood the second color as that commits you too much orange up top and because of the soft top being black it just doesn't flow right.. and the fade just looks

I would have done the armor orange as an accent.. But now that the hood is orange you could repaint the hood silver except for 2 large orange stripes, then do either the armor orange or just the armor bolt heads orange to tie it in.

Personally, i think it would look killer if you did it with flat black with the silver on the bottom - then add a red pinstripe to seperate the colors

I vote no on the two tone. Looks like the old Tampa Bay Bucs uniforms. Do you really wanna represent Buccaneer Bruce?
